Devotees in large numbers thronged Sai Baba temples in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad and the surrounding areas today in connection with the Guru Purnima festival. They had darsan of Sai Baba and offered special poojas at the temples.
Right from the early hours, special programs were organized at the temples, which were colourfully illuminated. The popular Sai Baba temples at Dilsukhnagar, Chaderghat, Punjagutta, Padma Rao Nagar in Secunderabad, and on the city outskirts have been specially decorated for the day. The Sai Baba temple at Shirdi, of course, has been attracting thousands of devotees since the early hours.
However, the devotees have been less enthusiastic this year on account of the total lunar eclipse from the late hours of Friday to the early hours of Saturday.
